The Xtrema Lithium Balancer (model XTR-BAL) is by far the most versatile and advanced balancer on the market. Featuring plug and go simplicity yet works with LiPo, Li ION and LiFe (A123- m1) batteries. It is the first ever balancer to feature three modes of operation; Stand Alone, PC Controlled and as an integrated add-on balancer for the Xtrema Charger / Wattmeter System.
STAND ALONE: When plugged directly into your battery balance connector, it automatically balance up to 6s packs, has full reverse plug-in protection and supports M1 cells (A123 Systems) via a jumper option. On board STATUS LED constantly displays how much your cells are imbalanced, letting you know exactly how bad things are while the imbalance is going away! A TME first! Standard 0.1” spaced square post pins plug into most popular balancer connectors (Apogee, Vampower, X-Caliber, Dualsky, Kokam and many others.) A 2mm spaced adapter is readily available for connecting to Thunder Power, Apex and other non-standard spaced balance connectors. (part number XTR-2MM).
PC CONTROLLED: With the optional Xtrema Data cable ( XTR-USB) you can monitor individual cell voltages, run tests and customize your balancer via a PC. You will know exactly which cell has a problem and know exactly what it is doing. Another TME first! We also have a 100KHz I2C interface for engineers, experimenters and OEM applications. Email us for more information. FREE updates for life has been the hallmark of the Xtrema brand. Whenever we add features or improvements to the balancer you may either send it back to us or update it yourself as a free download on the net. Many battery test and program discharge features are presently available with more battery tests planned for the future. FREE updates are a solid investment against planned obsolescence!
INTEGRATED: Xtrema BALANCE CHARGING SYSTEM Last but not least, our new balancer along with the new Xtrema Balancer Interface Module (XTR-BIM) brings fully integrated balancing to the Xtrema Lithium Charger. The optically isolated interface supports two balancers each and can be paired up to provide up to 4 optically isolated balancing connections! This means you can simultaneously balance up to 4 series or 4 parallel packs connected to separate balancers but charged as one giant pack! The isolation makes connecting balancers to your batteries worry free since there is no way to get dangerous shorts if the sequence or polarity is wrong. Yet another TME first! Bringing the most sophisticated and flexible integrated balancing system to high end Lithium chargers on the market.
